|Subject: ||RE: My coach doesn't believe in thresholds and has us do only interval work. Is this normal for college?|

That sounds ok for in season work. With such short rests, those are probably tempo intervals. But what are you doing for preseason? That's when you're supposed to focus on tempo runs.
Is 400m-5000m pace considered tempo in college? If we do 200m reps they're usually around 30s. I think the slowest I've ever done reps at is 4:55 pace, which is my 5k race pace. Most are done around mile pace. Is that considered tempo in college?
I don't know what you mean by preseason. We train pretty much like this year-round, just in cross-country we did the workouts based on time rather than distance since we weren't on the track, so reps 30s, 45s, 60s, etc.
